The Spiritually Minded Is Life Eternal (S.M.I.L.E.) Forum is for the discussion of those who have faith in and are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as well as those who are sympathetic towards or interested in learning more about the Church with honest intent. More specifically, it's for those who want to more fully immerse themselves in the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and feel an unusually strong love for Him and His restored gospel and constantly want to expand their understanding in their minds and hearts about all aspects of the gospel, be it fundamentals or deep spiritual subject matter. Overall, if you are the kind of person who would instantly and unhesitatingly jump at any opportunity to have an edifying gospel discussion and gain spiritual light within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and you rejoice seeking for all of the "mysteries of God shall be[ing] unfolded unto you" (D&C 6:7), this is the place for you.
With that in mind, any conversation that is contentious or encourages contention or unkindness, as per admin discretion, is not welcome. This is a community for people who love each other, want to prepare for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and yearn anxiously for the building and establishing of Zion, who desire to see eye to eye and be one in heart and mind.
One of the goals of this forum is to provide a place where people feel safe and are encouraged to talk and collaborate in vulnerable but appropriate terms about honest questions, concerns, special experiences and doctrinal/gospel nuggets. When posting, please seek for the guidance of the Holy Ghost about controversial subject matter and be kind to those who are honestly seeking understanding about complex or complicated circumstances regarding sensitive subjects. No subject is off limits and anyone is welcome to ask hard/deep questions provided they do so with a spirit of total honesty and meekness. Any indications of malicious intent/impure motives may get you banned. I say "may" because we believe in repentance and change.
